Note on Husband: James Russell CHALMERS

Jimmie (James) Chalmers her last husband died in Sechelt B.C. the next town up the coast from our family home, this was where the hospital was, approx 25-32 yrs ago. Sorry I don't have better info. He was a merchant marine, Scots, in both world wars. Very short, so old, unknown how tall he was in younger yrs, huge hands. Interesting man lived with his brother Percy till he married Nana when he was 80.3

Note on Wife: Annie Alison MOWATT (1)

My grandmother died 2 yrs after my mother in Burnaby B.C. she was in a nursing home for 10yrs, unable to walk, talk, eat or... so 24 hr nursing care was required for her.3

Note on Wife: Annie Alison MOWATT (2)

[He ... [Chalmers] ...was very sorry to have married Nana, as she was jealous, drank on occasion w her wild drunk brother, but would dress in her white patent shoes, flowered dress, always perfect wig (under her hair down to her waist braided) anyhow, looked like a perfect grandma, ha ha, just give her a couple of drinks. My mother told me (after I was 16) that Nana was not as she appeared, I discovered her wild ways on several occasions, she jumped out of our car one day, drunk as a skunk, racing thru blackberries, ripping up her stockings, cutting her face & arms, crazy. ]3
